this order , as you stated, was expected. I believe you will see some larger orders soon from AA placed with Boeing. If not by year end, sometime in 1Q 2001.

My belief is that when that occurs it will contain more 763's and some 764's. We will see.

I would not be surprised if AA indeed orders 764's.
